Thank you for your reports. I will connect our install team to investigate your issue. and will get back to you if any news.
As i see, you have 2017 update 2 , and latest version MKL 2018 update 2. So are you ok to install MKL 2018 update 2 on the machine? .
And not sure if you have done that, you can submit your install question to create a support ticket to intel on-line service center http://www.intel.com/supporttickets
and here is some FAQ https://software.intel.com/en-us/faq/installation
I add some information here for your reference.
1. Regarding the root cause, according to your log, the file ide_c_common_vs2012_p_17.
2. The IDE integration may come from suite product or standalone MKL. Generally, if you find original installer package for PSXE 2017 Update 2 and uninstall IDE integration (remove package totally or in modify mode, unselected IDE integration in VS Integration dialog).
It should correctly remove old C++ IDE integration to Visual Studio 2012 , same as MKL component. If you'd like use other component of PSXE, you can install them with customize installation check out MKL
3. Anyway, As MKL are library, so all of things (include files, doc, libraries) are in C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_a
3.1. C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_a
3.2. C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_a
3.3. C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_a
